ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court ordered the government on Wednesday to immediately appoint chairman of the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and said it would review the matter after a week.
“We direct the secretary concerned to take up the issue immediately and discharge his function by appointing the PTA chairman without further loss of time,” said a three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.
The bench had taken up a petition of Khurram Shehzad Chughtai, an information technology expert, who had sought a court order for the government to complete the process of auctioning 3G spectrum licences on an urgent basis in a transparent manner and ensure early availability of the services. He suggested that the proceeds of the auction should be deposited in the federal treasury.
